INTRODUCTION: Consistency in clinical decision making is necessary for reliable assessment of student performance and teaching effectiveness, yet little has been done to examine variation in dental clinical supervision. As a member of IIUM this exercise is crucial as to give the best and ‘adil (justice) to students when doing assessment to their work. MATERIALS & METHODS: Twenty clinical lecturers were given a set of criteria of rubric and undergone twelve stations of clinical models focusing on several procedures in dentistry clinical works. The rubric and clinical models was prepared by six different groups of specialty including Periodontic, Conservative, General Dental Practitioner, Oral Surgery, Endodontic and Prosthodontic Dentistry. The lecturers go for baseline calibration and received training by 6 content experts immediately. Re-calibration is done after training. The time given for each station is 5 minutes. The rubric consist of 57 points.The examination used dental mirror, dental probe, dental models, x-rays, copies of students’ case note and manikin. Kappa statistics were used to determine inter-examiner reliability at baseline and re-calibration. RESULTS: For interexaminer statistic, the baseline calibration on 20 clinical lecturers indicated an inter-rater kappa ranging from 0.05-0.5.Re-calibration on the same 20 packages after training indicated an inter-rater kappa of 0.11-0.42. Activity kappa was in the slight to moderate agreement. Majority of examiners improved with time. CONCLUSION: The calibration of clinical lecturers should be performed regularly as it is crucial to maintain the stability of the examiners reliability. Furthermore the training needs to be conducted in effective environment to improve the result. It is hoped that the continuous training nurturing the “righteous individuals” which is one of the goals in Shariah principle.
